Hello everyone,
I have a Gateway GT5692 PC that has a 64 bit, triple core processor, but the pc has been hit by a power surge, and I believe the mobo is fried. I'd like to take the CPU out & put it in my Compaq Presario SR5350F computer if it will work. I'm already using the Gateway's 4GB of RAM & 500 GB HDD.

(Note: Everything seems to work on the Gateway except the display. usb ports, & lights on the power button.
HDD, Fans, & CD drive all spin)

Check this thread for more info.

My question is...

Will the triple core CPU out of the Gateway work in the Compaq that has a dual core CPU? & what issues might I have?

Sorry, but I'm not sure how to give the correct description of the CPU's so I'll give the links to the PC Specs.

Gateway GT5692 Specs

Compaq Presario SR5350F Specs

Working with hardware is new to me, but I really enjoy it, and don't mind taking some risks, If anyone has any other ideas, I'd love to hear them.

Thanks
Dave

No it won't your first gateway is a AMD phenom triple core, on a AM2+ socket, the second computer is a intel based 775 socket the two are not compatible with each other, you may be better off purchasing am2+ micro ATX motherboard, you can usually find them for 40-50 dollars from newegg.

Wow, thank you very much for the info patriot, I had no idea I could get one that cheap, although it will still be a while, as their are currently more important things on the agenda.

In the mean time. Considering that I'm just kind of playing with these machines, Is there anything else I can do with them? What would you do if you had them?
Just looking for some off the wall ideas here.

BTW, I am currently quad booting Windows Vista, Linux Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat, with my 360 GB hdd and Linux Mint Julia & Linux Kubuntu Maverick Meerkat with the 500 GB hdd borrowed from the Gateway. These are the OS's I want on the Gateway when I get the mobo.

Anyone feel free to reply with any suggestions.
